The Famous Rheims Cathedral of Today: Shattered by the vandal shells of the Germans, the grand old Cathedral of Rheims is nothing more than skeleton walls and blackened ruins. This historic spot was never surrendered to the Germans. President Woodrow Wilson has just visited this spot, where Americans fought and died, France.

Ferrotyped prints are processed in such a way that they are shiny. The print has a sensitive surface, usually thinner, because it was put through a press while still wet.
Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
